I have a new question. I have ppp set up on interface tun0, got my IP
and all, handling the DSL connection quite nicely - so far.
Now the question: Since the IP is dynamic, I have some things that
need doing anytime it changes, like update the Apache config and
restart it, update the zoneedit dns records so I still get my mail,
etc. Where do I handle this? Is there an exit hook I can specify for
ppp to call when it gets a new IP?
The "hooks" go in /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup and /etc/ppp/ppp.linkdown. The
ppp(8) man page is kind of long, but well worth the read. There are
assorted sample files in /usr/share/examples/ppp/ too.
I can't even find the dhcp lease or the network broadcast info. When
I was with AT&T, it was basic DHCP and it all went into
/var/db/dhclient.leases. The only place I can get the IP from now is
You are not getting your address via DHCP, as you are using PPP which
does its own address negotiation. One of these days I will understand
the point of running PPP over ethernet...
